Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) Required for Visa- Exempt Travelers


The Canadian government now requires visa- exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) before boarding the plane. Starting August 1, 2015, visa- exempt travelers can apply online for an eTA and on March 15, 2016, an eTA will be mandatory for visa- exempt travelers before they can board their flight to Canada. The new travel authorization system will require persons planning to travel to Canada by air to give the Canadian government their personal information in order for Canadian authorities to check their names against databases to determine if they pose a threat to the health, safety or security of Canada. U.S. citizens, travelers with a valid visa, and travelers by land or sea, are exempt.

EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2015: THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT HAS ANNOUNCED THE FOLLOWING:

"Express Entry," a new immigration system, used to manage and select applicants to immigrate into the country.

• Express Entry uses electronic profiles to highlight a person's best attributes including education, work experience and language skills, among others

• These profiles are looked at under the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program or Canadian Experience Class and then put into a pool of candidates

• An individual will wait in this pool until given an invitation to apply for permanent residence

• Candidates are chosen on a point based system, with priority given to those people who match Canada's economic needs, therefore only top ranking candidates will be invited

• Once invited, an individual has 60 days to submit an application for permanent residence

Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) in the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP): A Benefit or Disadvantage?

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) governs the hiring of foreign workers to work in Canada temporarily. Plainly stated, the objective of the TFWP is to ensure the recruitment of foreign workers as a last resort, when no Canadians are available to do the job. In order for a Canadian employer to hire a foreign worker, a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) must therefore be approved by the Government.

Canada's International Mobility Program (IMP)

A new addition to the TFWP is the International Mobility Program (IMP). This program allows foreign nationals to be LMIA-exempt. The IMP's primary objective is to advance Canada's broad economic and cultural national interest. As a result, this program is not based on filling particular jobs or meeting employer demands. Rather, this program encompasses multilateral/bilateral agreements with other countries (e.g. NAFTA, GATS). Additionally, these workers are primarily high skilled workers with high wages from developed countries (ie. U.S.A).
